Mullen’s “Rally for Rusty” started with a third-quarter flourish, and D-2 No. 3 Mullen took the first step of the week to defend its state championship with a 58-49 win over No. 4 Mead Friday night at Lincoln Northeast.

No. 1-rated Mead earned its first trip to the state finals since 2009 with a 46-36 victory over No. 4 Parkview Christian Friday afternoon in the semifinals of the Class D-2 state tournament at the Devaney Sports Center.

Mead’s impressive late-season run continued at the expense of Riverside. The No. 3-rated (Omaha World-Herald) Raiders posted their seventh consecutive victory Tuesday night, beating the No. 2 Chargers 42-33 in the Class D-2, District 2 final at Cross County High School.

Giltner, Mead, Deshler, Nebraska Christian and St. Edward got together for a day of volleyball, but the best of the bunch Saturday turned out to be the host Hampton Hawks.
